He's got seven PGA Tour victories, over $19 million dollars in earnings and has played for the US twice in the Ryder Cup. Dustin Johnson makes plenty of headlines on the golf course, but in the world of social media, he's getting more attention about his girlfriend. The former Coastal Carolina All-American is dating singer and model Paulina Gretzky, the daughter of hockey hall of famer Wayne Gretzky and actress Janet-Jones Gretzky.
The Gretzky's came to the Grand Strand to play with Dustin at Hootie and the Blowfish's Monday after the Masters. The team shot -17 under par to finish one shot off the leader. The Gretzky clan also spent the week with Dustin and his family at the Masters in Augusta, Georgia. Johnson briefly held the lead on Friday afternoon at -7 under par before closing out with two double bogeys and two bogeys on the final five holes of the second round. Dustin shot -7 for 67 holes, and +6 over for that five hole stretch on Friday. His -1 under par total gave him a tie for 13th place, his best ever finish at Augusta National.
When WPDE's Mark Haggard asked both Wayne and Janet if Dustin was son-in-law material, both were very complimentary of him, but laughed at the question. "He's a wonderful gentleman and we'll see what the future brings," Jones-Gretzky said.
